The Face of the Real Thing

Meet Team Savannah Coca-Cola.  In a long history of branding, there are few companies that have nailed it as well as Coca-Cola and fewer slogans so synonymous with the Coca-Cola brand as “The Real Thing.”  

For Savannah Coca-Cola, our local bottler providing the Hostess City with the refreshment of Coca-Cola since 1902, The Real Thing is just the beginning.  Sure they still bring that classic Coca-Cola taste to millions in the Coastal Empire, but alongside the real thing you’ll find a product line of more than 500 choices in soft drinks, from low and no calorie options including Powerade, BodyAmor, Dasani, Smart Water, Minute Maid Juices, Gold Peak Tea, Coffee’s, Fair Life, Core Power, Coca-Cola Energy, Monster Energy, NoS energy, Full Throttle Energy and AHA Sparkling Water to name a few. It’s an aggressive expansion of offerings designed to meet consumer demand wherever it may lead  – if you’re thirsty for it, odds are good you’re going to find it among their offerings. Like the great brand of Coca-Cola itself, which has called Georgia home since it was created in Atlanta in 1886, Savannah Coca-Cola never stops innovating – especially when there is refreshment to offer. 

When they first began quenching the Hostess City’s thirst for ice-cold Coca-Cola, our Savannah distributor did so in a mule-drawn wagon. Today, their operation is a little more involved, but you’ll find the true strength of their operation is in good old fashion people power. “We like to say our secret ingredient is our people” says division director, Rick Terrell. That’s right, even more special than the delicious refreshment they bring is the people who bring it to Savannah and surrounding areas, some of whom you’ll see here. “We always put our associates first,” says Terrell. “We pride ourselves on being the best in the business.” At 200+ employees strong, Savannah Coca-Cola has become an indelible part of our community, not just in the folks they employ but in their generosity as a community sponsor for events and organizations that have become the fabric of Savannah.
